The Vanguard quoted one of the community leaders, Sani Bakali, as confirming the invasion, saying that the bandits stormed the village on motorbikes wielding dangerious weapons.

“They invaded our village on Tuesday around 4 pm and burnt down many bags of maize, cars, buses and motorcycles. They looked so dangerous.”
